planes, and that's eventually the front that will be crossing our area, but it doesn't do very much to the pattern. i'll explain. meanwhile, also, stalled frontal boundary well off to the south here, even what promise initially on some of the computer models last week to maybe even turn into tropical system, does not look like that's going to happen. but very heavy rain, is the expectation, down across florida, and you can see what's going to happen here with our future weather map thrown over top of. >> this now as far as we're concerned, high pressure generally the theme through the rest of the day today through tomorrow, you can see some of the moisture starting to build up off to the south and west, as this next cold front, that we just showed you, over wisconsin starts to creep ever closer. that will eventually come thursday afternoon start to trigger some showers, some locally heavy if not stronger gusty thunderstorms, but his front, so testify ten see front roll through knock the heat back. it doesn't really happen that way, this time. simply because, it is not real that i strong, with the cold air that's coming in it wake. so we will stay, we think into the 90s here for the next
couple every days, for now your feels like values, factoring in the humidity here, but his is far better gauge when you walk out the door the way you want to dress is shorts and t-shirt obviously as loose fitting clothing as you possibly can muster up here, or just head to the pool. the core of the heat at this point still definitely confined basically across the mid and lower mississippi valley right now. where it feels like your a currently into trip ill digit territory. some that far will migrate our way with time here. now as you might imagine that is definitely messing with our eyewitness weather health report. we've got a lot of bright yellow showing up here, air quality, talked about this earlier, up at moderate today especially new jersey, not ideal. pollen levels little higher, uv index very high, and when you factor in the humidity, your heat index values, it is the category called extreme caution. you just need to be careful make sure you're staying hydrated water is the beverage of choice obviously certainly make sure to take frequent breaks. meanwhile out in the live neighborhood network we go, had a lot of fog this morning in kutztown, but at this point, things have definitely cleared out.
another location, for you here, out in middle township high school, clear as a bell, but it is getting toasty out there, 79 degrees currently near the shore point. we like to give you gauge how great the pool forecast is going to be, thinking, five out of five beach balls sound good for. >> this talk about a nice excuse to take a dip here. but look at this. we keep up in the 90s for the first five actually six seventh day of the next seven and the steamy days look to be tomorrow and thursday, where it likely feels like triple digit. well thankfully see the humidity take bit of break by friday that's good news. >> and another place the shore. >> beat the heat there. here go. close encounter of cute kind. pair of colorado sheriff deputies end count they are baby northern saw wet owl just hawking out in a rural road near boulder. stopped to get a look, then the baby owl watts just as curious as the deputy. both this video and those photos have thousands of views on the sheriff's facebook page. we're coming right back.
